The sweet spot between high self-importance and low self-esteem is self-compassion. It’s as important to extend compassion to yourself as it is to others.
Years ago, I made a mistake that caused me to beat myself up almost daily. With the help of mentors and supportive people in my life, I learned to be kind to myself and break out of my own mental prison.
We realize perfection isn’t attainable by others, but sometimes don’t afford ourselves that same grace.
Be kind to yourself and suspend self hyper-critical thinking to move toward loving yourself correctly.
Do you find it hard to practice self-compassion?
